Orange

Forest Park Fall Foliage 2014-10-26 3

Orange is not my favorite color. I prefer serene blues or vigorous reds. Orange has always struck me as sort of a decayed red. Since our red and white Cardinals didn't make it quite that far, when I watched the World Series this week I was rooting for the blue and white Kansas City Royals, our cross-state neighbors, over the orange and black San Francisco Giants. Unfortunately, the team that dressed like a sooty fire won.

There is one grove of trees in Forest Park that has the best fall color year after year. These pictures were taken there last weekend. The colors have faded since then.

As I said over at flickr you need to print the top photo.

This one is perfect orange. Love it.

I don't like orange, either. Or brown. But I love both those colors in these photos!

They are such beautiful colours, Bob.

We must be gracious, Bob. In the absence of the Red Sox -- who stunk the joint out this year -- I was rooting for KC, but Mr. Bumgarner was spectacular and put the whole SF team on his shoulders. (Great orange and black photo up top.)
